From Batch Processing to Real-time Analytics with ChistaDATA’s ClickHouse


The landscape of data analytics has evolved rapidly, and while batch processing systems like Hadoop have their merits, they can introduce complexities that challenge engineering and operations. In this article, we’ll explore how such systems can complicate data analytics and why leading global corporations are migrating to ClickHouse with ChistaDATA’s expert support to build advanced ultra-low latency real-time analytics solutions. 

Challenges with Batch Processing Systems

  1. Latency and Timeliness: Batch processing inherently involves delays. In industries where real-time insights are crucial, waiting for batches to complete can hinder decision-making and responsiveness.
  2. Resource Intensive: Batch jobs require significant computing resources, leading to potential resource contention, longer processing times, and increased operational costs.
  3. Complex Data Pipeline: Designing, maintaining, and optimizing complex data pipelines for batch processing demands substantial engineering effort, potentially diverting resources from other critical tasks.
  4. Data Staleness: As batch jobs are periodic, data analysis is often performed on outdated information, limiting the ability to respond to dynamic changes swiftly.
  5. Scalability Challenges: Scaling batch systems to handle growing data volumes can be intricate, necessitating careful planning and continuous adjustments.
